Luke Evans Joins DreamWorks’ ‘The Girl on the Train’

Luke Evans has joined the cast of DreamWorks’ adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-seller “The Girl on the Train” starring Emily Blunt.

Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux and Allison Janney also star in the pic. Tate Taylor is directing.

The story follows a woman (Blunt) devastated by her recent divorce who spends her commute fantasizing about a seemingly perfect married couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. Along the way, she becomes entangled in a mystery revolving around the couple.

Evans will play the husband of a neighbor (Bennett) who goes missing.

Erin Cressida Wilson penned the script. Marc Platt will produce through his banner along with Jared LeBoff serving as exec producer.

The pic bows on Oct. 7, 2016.

Evans broke out as the villain in “Fast & Furious 6” and as Bard the Bowman in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” movies. He portrays Gaston in Disney’s live-action rendition of Beauty and the Beast which is set for a March 2017 release. He can be seen next in Ben Wheatley’s “High Rise.”

Evans is repped by WME and United Agents in the U.K. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news.
